All this waiting for a new signing is really bringing down the mood of the Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern…
Despite an excellent season last year, the Blues in the pub are concerned that they are going to get left behind next season, and so they are demanding the signing of a few top players.
Chelsea are clearly making moves to make that the case, but unfortunately for the fans in the pub, there has yet to be any confirmed statements about any transfers.
However, if the Daily Star are to be believed, Chelsea are edging closer to that end, with the Blues said to have agreed terms on a £150,000-per-week deal with Romelu Lukaku, with the club reportedly making the decision to focus on a deal for Lukaku over any other forward.
Whilst this is not quite the news that the fans in the pub were hoping for, they still view this as progress. Now that Chelsea are said to have made their mind up and agreed terms with the player, it is now up to them to secure a deal with Everton directly.
Lukaku would certainly be a good fit at Stamford Bridge, having bagged 5 more goals than Diego Costa in the Premier League last season, with a grand total of 25. Our landlord, though, thinks that Chelsea need to get this done as soon as possible, because time is running out.
